    I have been working at Dean Foods full-time (more than 3 years)


    This company will (for the most part) back you with difficult decisions


    As with most Fortune 500, it is monetarily driven and therefore they do put people and products at risk when they state they will never compromise either of those

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Dean Foods.

    Interview Details

    Recommended to replace a person I had previously worked with. HR portion of process was very lacking both in assistance and in speed of process. GM ran the interview and asked several "No-No" questions. Culture was very much a "good ole boys network" and turned out if you were not in the network you were very limited.

    Interview Questions
